I am interested in working from home, there are so many ads online, but almost all want money paid up front. For a person who has no job, it is difficult to pay upfront with the risk of not making money at all from all these ads. Is there a way to start a business from home without a down payment, or payment after you start to make money?

You can start a business at home providing you have the talent to create something and produce it and sell it from home. There might be the requirement of having a state sales tax license. Also if it is a food product you might have to have a health inspection. Some offices do have programs where employees work from home. Some medical transcriptionists are able to work from home, but you need the special training and from what I understand you also need a special computer system.
Never, ever pay a fee to work! These are scams! What kind of work do you want to do from home? That might make it easier for us to give you an answer of what to try.
Check with any of your local thrift stores and see if they need anyone to schedule donation pick ups. Depending on your area, Purple heart, disabled vets, salvation army. I did it with the disabled vets, they paid per pickup and did not take taxes out so watch out for those and they will usually be under independent contracting. But never pay for any job.
There are legitimate work from home virtual call centers. I work for liveops.com, however, please note that you are required to pay for the background check before you can work for them. There are other virtual callc enters and they are legitimate, but again you have to pay for the background check. How much that is depends on how in depth a background check is being done.
I paid $35 for mine. I have worked for Liveops for three years now and it was a worthwhile investment.
The Att General office and BBB say about 95% of those out there are fake. Do not pay money to 'join'. Go to your state's BBB to check them out. Some are not legal in certain states. Meaning they ticked the states AG off and got the door slammed on them!
